Sohar Port and Freezone promotes active lifestyle
In line with its continuous commitment to build strong bonds with the community in the sultanate, Sohar Port and Freezone has joined hands with Oman Sail to implement the ‘Get Sohar Active’ initiative.
Under this programme, the Port and Freezone aims to inspire its local community to embrace an active lifestyle through a number of initiatives for children and adults related to the Al Mouj Muscat Marathon, which Sohar is sponsoring for a period of three years.
Highlighting the importance of their collaboration, Mark Geilenkirchen, CEO of Sohar Port and Freezone said, “We are extremely delighted to partner with Oman Sail, with the aim of encouraging people to take on a healthier lifestyle and partake in physical activity. Our initiatives also emphasise on the principles of dedication, hard work and motivation, as well as the creation of a healthier community in general.”
As part of Get Sohar Active, Sohar Port and Freezone has initiated a number of activities for the whole community, including the provision of complimentary entries for ten corporate relay teams to the marathon.
Through a joint effort with Oman Sail and the Directorate General of Education in North Batinah, the Sohar CSR team has registered 500 school children to take part in the Kids’ Run race at Al Mouj Muscat Marathon. It will also host six training sessions for adults and children.
